    Immer Wieder says:

    I only go to the Mail Online to look at the pictures of tits on the sidebar. Makes a change from just reading about them here.

    Meanwhile.....in the real world...... says:

    We don’t enjoy reading three minute-old Guido stories, ducky.

    keredybretsae says:

    Stories are for children, surely?

    Derek Yeasty says:

    Do you, too, have an uncontrollable rash?

  7. 7
    keredybretsae says:

    Only between the ball-sack and inner thigh.

    Questions of our time says:

    Why did M’edhi H’asan not get that job ?

  9. 9
    Derek Yeasty says:

    I tried cutting down on Marmite.

    Everything has to be a bitch-fight nowadays.

    Can’t we have some good old fashioned slogging?

  12. 12
    Answers of our time says:

    – A real ass-et of Huff Po.

  13. 13
    Fleet Street says:

    What has he ever hacked?

  14. 14
    As it turns out says:

    Mo Farah is a plastic Brit.

  15. 15
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    There is a curious cognitive dissonance here – which is to your point.

    It’s all about bitch fighting, being catty.

    Not about dog fighting, or slogging it out.

    The latter are masculine, the former feminine.

    A subtle corruption of conflict to keep it in the female sphere and minds at conflict feminized ?

  16. 16
  17. 17
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Plastic in the sense of a tax avoiding foreigner with a UK passport.

  18. 18

    The nearest I ever had to a feminine side, I suppose, was when my dear ex-business partner used to phone me up in the morning and say Hello, you c**t! :-)

  19. 19
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Time to bomb Brussels… go Russ!a go Russ!a !

  20. 20
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    That sounds like a fantastic way to start the day ;-)

    Are you sure you are not David Cameron ?

  21. 21
    keredybretsae says:

    I would NEVER spread Marmite on my scrotum. A little manuka honey, occasionally, maybe.

  22. 22
    Red Ken Lyingscum says:

    Isn’t he a tax exile now ?

  23. 23
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Or, with more reasoned international relation analysis:

    The EU has been asking for it for a while now, and if it doesn’t change it’s attitude, the EU is going to get what’s coming.

  24. 24
    Putin says:

    The Ukraine is none of the EU’s business

  25. 25
    And in summing up m'lud says:

    Might I remind you of the defendant’s own words,,,
    from 4.30 onwards

  26. 26
    The British Public says:

    True. But why should the UK get swept up in the EU’s hubris

  27. 27
    von Ribbentrop says:

    You know..there is a precedent for joining up with the Russians to deal with a problem nation.

  28. 28
    The public says:

    Say no to taking in Ukrainian refugees.

  29. 29
    The public says:

    Medhi Hassan ?

    I don’t think he is. You’re thinking of his cousin. Saddam Hassan.

  30. 30
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    There is going to be a lot more to this, and a gun shot wound to the leg can be fatal.


    Good to see some follow up reporting. If it isn’t a personal problem, then perhaps things are starting to get desperate in the real markets.

    Could other staff working in financial services be next if this is EU inspired ?

  31. 31
    Fish says:

    He should go down well at the False Flag Daily Mail, who has we know from Leveson is led by a friend of the Great McDoom (and saviour of the universe).

    Who had on one day earlier this week 4 stories trashing the Tories.

  32. 32
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    The national security of the UK should certainly not be put at risk by the EU, which is precisely what is happening right now with both Syr!a and U’kraine, not to mention the uncontrolled migration of East European criminals and sex offenders that has already happened, and is continuing to happen.

    It is good to see Put!n delivering some straight talk, but it would not be good if the UK found itself in a proxy confrontation between Russ!a and the US because of it’s treaty obligations to the EU.

    Syr!a last year was close enough, and a very near miss.

  33. 33
    Ed Milihollandeband says:

    Vive la Republique d’Angleterre!

  34. 34
    Cinna says:

    Syria is none of the UK’s business either, but look where we are…….

  35. 35
    Gooey Blob says:

    So Gloria de Piero attacks the Lib Dems for its lack of women. That’s rich coming from someone parachuted into Ashfield who has absolutely nothing to do with the constituency she “represents” and whose own party officials described as “Geoff Hoon in a skirt”.

    Doubly amusing that Ashfield is one of very few areas where the Lib Dems have been making significant gains at the expense of Labour, who are in a degree of disarray locally. Believe it or not, Gloria could even her seat to a Lib Dem in 2015.

  36. 36

    We were known around the business as an unassailable double act. If one of us went to a meeting alone, the other would phone through on the mobile about 20 minutes after it started.

    The idea was to take the call, say something like No you can’t! Fuck off! and shut the phone off sharpish.

    The effect on the other side was mesmerising and we did not get too much trouble over people reneging.

    Happy days! :-)

  37. 37

    David Cameron has never had a real job, has he?

  38. 38
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    She’s got better tits than Geoff.

  39. 39
    Blowing Donkey Whistles says:

    I’ve got a spare seat on my face that she’s welcome to sit on.

  40. 40
    General Vlasov says:

    It didn’t really turn out too well for some of us, though, did it?

  41. 41
    Gary Bloke says:

    MailOnline could also do with some decent subs. It is riddled with howlers. Many readers point them out in the comments area, but they are rarely corrected. I have a feeling that there is no responsible adult at DMGT taking a look at its online offering.

  42. 42
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Oh, brilliant! :-)

  43. 43
    Fish says:

    That’s a dilemma for Milipedeski.

    Does he go with his beloved EU…or his beloved Putin

    (actually he’ll probably go with whatever Len tells him)

  44. 44
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Drunk rigger mistook female police officer for a stripper… and didn’t realise until she ARRESTED him

  45. 45
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Probably because there is no responsible adult visiting its online offering…

  46. 46
    Anonymous says:

    Well I never, they didn’t approach you Fawkesy, same on them, you would have quite been at home in the Daily Wail, and you would be taken more seriously by Dave & Co., then who knows, at CCHQ and then who knows, parachuted in to a nice safe Con seat.

  47. 47
    Pschye the Dog says:

    Puss not many in any party have, unless you call a journalist’s job a real one

  48. 48
    Pschye the Dog says:

    My, that sounds nasty!

  49. 49
    Ed the Eunuch says:

    The Mirror should be closed down. Scum!

  50. 50
    Criminal scum R Us. says:

    Guido. Has Watson resigned from the Mirror yet? Or is he just a big fat hypocrite?

  51. 51
    Ippikin says:

    Scotland and the Pound.

    Now Alex Salmond is no fool and must know that to enter a currency union with us would largely negate any fiscal policy he may wish to adopt, which in turn makes independence pretty pointless.

    Is his being wedded to this impracticality perhaps nothing whatever to do with reality, but more to do with keeping the potential Yes voters on-board by offering the comfort of Big Daddy UK being there to cushion the fall?

    If one takes that on board, one conclusion must be that in reality he has no intention of keeping the pound at all; otherwise what is the point of independence if he cannot run his own tax and spend ambitions, which are currently supported by our largesse.

    The other view of course is that he could have his nominal independence, yet know we will always be there to pick up the pieces just as the EU has to do with Greece, Spain, Portugal & Ireland (so far).

    Yet another example of the slipperiness of his ambition?

    The sooner we say No to fiscal union and the Scots say Yes to independence the better for the rest of us long suffering ‘partners’ in this unholy alliance!

  52. 52
    Ippikin says:

    He’s a big fat hypocrite of course. Has there ever been any doubt?

  53. 53
    David Cameron Is A Cunt says:

    The Mail Online is becoming noticeably more lefty by the day, he’ll feel right at home there.

    It’s an interesting, if typically left wing entryist, strategy: build the Mail online up to be, so they claim, the worlds most visited news site, with a right of centre approach, and then once you have the regular readership, keep tacking left trying to take them with you. Mind you it has manifestly not worked for David Cameron’s Conservatives.

  54. 54
    FFS says:

    If the independent Scots wanted to bring back hanging then they could do so even with fiscal union.

    This is the kind of independence we’ve been looking for in the West Country for years.

  55. 55
    FFS says:

    I think they are under the impression that the lefties that comment on the website are indicative of the readership, when in fact they are only indicative of people so incensed by the Daily Mail they become motivated to get a login and comment. Consequently the online Mail has moved to assuage the sensibilities of its presumed left-wing readership.

    Once it has moved way over to the left, it will wonder where all its readers went.

  56. 56
    Ippikin says:

    That’s what the Moonrakers said about the Excise Man!

    rick says:

    Am I getting old, or does this McTague look about 15 ?

  58. 58
    Fly on the wall says:

    Anyone know yet why that bloke jumped of the JPM building the other day?

  59. 59
    Fly on the wall says:

    Bit like the illiterates who type up the Sky and BBC news foot-of-the-page runners

  60. 60
    Fly on the wall says:

    Another one who has had a sense of humour by-pass. Silly cow.

  61. 61
    Fly on the wall says:

    Yup, about 5 Bawbees to a pound sounds about right.

  62. 62
    Fly on the wall says:

    They’ll wonder where their readers went when they fill their pages with lefty content.

    You will all of course recall that famous Pepsodent ad from way back…

  63. 63
    Sink the Bismarck ! says:

    Does UUH Sniff still give sales of the Daily Hitler an artificial boost by flogging it off as cheap bog-paper in the afternoon ?

  64. 64
    Ma­q­bo­­ul says:

    It’s an old picture of him, Silly.

    …taken of him last year on school outing.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
